Soundproofer Worthing West Sussex (BN11): If you're anxious about the level of noise that's invading your Worthing home, be it in a studio, home office, lounge or bedroom, you should contemplate putting in some soundproofing. In some cases you might be thinking about soundproofing so you do not disturb other inhabitants from a music room, home cinema or children's room. Whatever your needs are, soundproofing will give you peace of mind.
It's important for us to understand how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to find strategies to stop it from occurring.
Sound can travel in a couple of ways:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. By the vibration of air molecules.
Sound can also travel through water, but unless you're thinking about soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we will simply consider its isolation through materials and air.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the space to be soundproofed and notice ill fitted windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we identify and hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. All sounds are moved through the air in this same manner; it doesn't matter if it's heavy machinery, kids playing, passing aircraft, music or traffic that creates the sound.
If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, and you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with liquid.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We know that sound is simply the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, but those vibrations are also transferred to solid objects. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may cause a resonating effect which is transmitted outside of the room itself. Even if a room is built from a solid material which is resistant against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be transmitted and even amplified to other parts of the building.
However, how can these effects be stopped from causing a problem? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only will such a simple solution help reduce your noise problem, it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also prevent sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofing installers.
Finding and plugging any gaps around the rooms, think electrical sockets, doors, windows and light fittings, is also a straightforward task for a skilled DIY enthusiast. You can find professional acoustic sealants in some DIY outlets that moderate the transfer of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more pricey than normal plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the additional cost.
If you're going to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then look at the possibility of installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a dense board which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is effective for spaces like music studios, home offices or movie rooms which are being built within the home. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is advisable to bring in a professional fitter in Worthing, to achieve the maximum effect from its installment.
Last but not least you should check all doors in the area you're looking to soundproof. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll discover that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid wood doors you will discover that it enhances your room's soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING WORTHING
If the sound levels are excessive in your area, due to traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more substantial ways to deal with the excess noise will have to be explored. You'll receive the best possible soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a skilled soundproofing specialist.
Be prepared to answer the following four questions during an investigation of your particular soundproofing requirements:
- What's the size of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?
- What sounds or noise are you wanting to reduce? i.e. External things like neighbours, street noise, aircraft etc, or sounds within your home from a home cinema or music room.
- Which is the main place where the sound creates the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming down from overhead, from the walls, through windows or up through the floors, or is it a combination of all these things.
- What kind of room or area do you want to soundproof? Does it have a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
A certified soundproofing contractor in Worthing will look into all these factors to offer remedies for your noise issues for various budgets. They'll offer different strategies for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS
Two key components are needed to soundproof any type of room or space:
- Cut down on the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
- The absorption of sound will need to be maximised.
An on-site survey will be necessary to pinpoint the aspects to be improved.
Solutions from the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help boost the soundproofing characteristics of the space. This additional mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.
Any voids in the area may need some kind of muffling material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. If you imagine a drum for instance, you are looking at a noise amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; basically what you may find inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.
Soundproofing is improved if multiple layers of different density materials are used, rather than installing a single sort of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different kinds of materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are required.
Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be applied by any soundproofing firm in Worthing. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks work and live.
The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade associations who provide qualifications and training, and represent the very best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing solutions. Only those Worthing businesses that have been appraised and approved by these associations for professionalism, quality and reliability are allowed to bear the logo.
